Across the U.S., state and local government agencies require a wide variety of machinery, equipment and furniture to ensure that public employees are well equipped to do their jobs effectively. These can include agricultural tools and equipment, building equipment and heavy machinery, lawn care equipment, machine tools, office machines, scientific and testing supplies, and much more.
